on the first server changed user ownership and permissions, but still the same error

Quote:
chown -R first-server-user.first-server-user *
chmod 677 *

Quick solution to Pureftpd 553 error


After setting up an account with Pureftpd, you are likely to be greeted by an error 553:

Pureftpd error 553 Can't open that file: Permission denied

It has to do with the user and group permission. Solution:

1. Edit your Pure-ftpd account and set UID and GID to www (or any other).
2. SSH to root console. and run
chown -R www:www /home/backup

Replace "/home/backup" with your ftp folder. This command assigns userid www, usergroup www to be the the owner of that folder and all the folder underneath it (R = recursive)
